Did a pretty quick cover for the entertainment tab this week. I spent about 20-30 minutes on the rough and about 45 minutes doing the final drawing and color job. I spent a few hours trying more stuff-- other ideas and treatments, before deciding that I didn't need to do anything else. That's the way it goes sometimes.
Photoshop & Illustrator.
Here's the rough. I thought about using this as is, but it didn't quite feel right to me at the time. Kind of like it now! Oh, well. I did leave the "pencil drawing" in the final-- turned it to a light red and faded it. I like to see a little of the rough stuff in the finals. It humanizes it, keeps it from looking too slick.
